Make up 2 groups according to colourful stripes on your desks and take your seats at the table. Слайд 23
Here you can find texts and tables. Each group has a different table. Your task is to read the text first and remember as many details as possible. You have 3 minutes to complete the task.
Text 1. ST. PAUL'S CATHEDRAL
Everybody coming to London for the first time wants to see St. Paul's Cathedral. This is the third cathedral with this name which London has had. The two others were burnt down, the first in 1086 and the second in 1666.
Christopher Wren was an architect who had already built many buildings. In 1675, he started his greatest work. For 35 years the building of St. Paul's Cathedral went on, and Wren was an old man before it was finished.
From far away you can see the huge dome with a golden ball and cross on the top. The inside of the cathedral is very beautiful. After looking around, you can climb 263 steps to the Whispering Gallery, above the library, which runs round the dome. It is called this because if someone whispers close to the wall on one side, a person with an ear close to the wall on the other side can hear what is said. Then, if you climb another 118 steps, you will be able to stand outside the dome and look over London.
Text 2. The Tower of London
The tower of London is the most interesting place in London because it reflects the history of the country. William the Conqueror built it of white stone in 1066. It was called the White Tower. The Tower of London was a fortress, a palace, a prison and a King’s Zoo. Now it is a museum. You can see a lot of interesting things in the halls of the White Tower. The symbol of the Tower of London is six black ravens. People keep them in the Tower and look after them very well because they believe that London will be rich while ravens live there. That is why the birds have clipped wings and are guarded carefully.
Nowadays the Tower is a museum. But in this prison the jewels are locked up. The jewels are the famous “Crown Jewels” of England. According to the traditions the Tower is guarded by Beefeaters. They still wear their 16th century bright and colourful Tudor uniforms.
Now I want you to choose a person who will join another group. Good! Your task is to ask a representative from another group questions about the sight and complete the tables. You have 4 minutes to complete the task. Card #3+texts
